I am 5'8" and have a fairly thick neck, broad shoulders, and thick chest. Seems like everything made nowadays is for the bean-pole body type and nothing fits after you hit the weight bench a bit too hard. I am a bit on the heavier side now, but even when I was super-fit in the Army running every day I was always 200-210.
I am looking for a clothing maker that fits without binding around the back and arms & limit my range of motion without wearing something that doubles for a tent with sleeves dangling 5" past my hands.
My 1993 North Face Smear size L from when I was a kid, while a little tight around the waist, offers suitable room--I can cross my arms without feeling like the back is going to tear out or reach above me without the armholes binding. Unfortunately the Ultrex liner is pretty shot and flakes everywhere--not to mention that it is a bit bulky. I have another jacket that is an XXL that is like going downhill in a tent.
Marmot, North Face at the XL are mad tight in the shoulder--but the lengths are long in the arms--I didn't have the opportunity to try an XXL.
Is there any manufacturer out there I should try?
